Royal Challengers v Super Kings: IPL Betting Tips

By Matt Harris on April 20, 2019

Travelling to the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium on Sunday are the Chennai Super Kings who are hoping to condemn the Royal Challengers to elimination while maintaining their charge to the playoffs. So let’s get right to our IPL tips for Royal Challengers v Super Kings.

Without MS Dhoni, CSK lost to the Sunrisers last time out. They will therefore be eager to take two points back from Bangalore. Meanwhile, RCB are still alive following a Virat Kohli masterclass that took them to victory over Kolkata on Friday. The skipper blasted the fifth century of IPL 12 and Bangalore’s season isn’t quite over yet.

What are the IPL tips for Royal Challengers v Super Kings?

That impressive display from RCB on Friday sees them gain support in the IPL betting markets. Nevertheless, they are the outside Satta here at 2.10. Chennai Super Kings are the favourites at 1.72 with Betway and it does point to a CSK win here.

Chennai aren’t such a dominant force away from their home surface, but the game really comes down to dismissing Virat Kohli quickly. We’re backing the Super Kings to remove the opposing skipper cheaply. Once that’s done, they should then cruise to a comfortable victory.

Match Odds Summary: Royal Challengers Bangalore: 2.10, Chennai Super Kings: 1.72 (Betway – Editor’s Pick)

What are the top batsman IPL tips for Royal Challengers v Super Kings?

Kohli made exactly 100 from just 58 balls on Friday. That score subsequently sees him clear at the top of Bangalore’s top batsman market. The skipper has odds of 2.87. Meanwhile, AB De Villiers follows at 4.00 with Bet365.

Moeen Ali has been making some welcome contributions with the bat and he can be found at 7.00 with Betway. Other options for RCB include Parthiv Patel at 5.00, Marcus Stoinis at 7.00, and Shivam Dube at 13.00.

Chennai’s success this season has largely been down to their bowlers, and there are several batsmen looking for better form. CSK’s version of this market starts with Suresh Raina at 4.00, followed by Shane Watson at 4.33.

Faf Du Plessis has delivered profits in this market at IPL 12 and he is listed at 4.33. Other batters here include Ambati Rayudu at 5.50, Kedar Jadhav at 7.50, and MS Dhoni at 9.00.

Kohli may seem an obvious pick here, while his return to form leads to better prices for some of his team mates. However, we’ll turn to Chennai for our IPL 2019 Satta this time.

We’ve yet to see the best of Ambati Rayudu in this tournament and his subdued displays may have cost him his place at the World Cup. He knows he has a point to prove to selectors. We’re therefore happy to get behind Rayudu in Chennai’s top batsman market.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: Royal Challengers Bangalore: Kohli 2.87, De Villiers 4.00, Patel 5.00, Ali 7.00, Stoinis 7.00, Dube 13.00 (Bet365).

Chennai Super Kings: Raina 4.00, Watson 4.33, Du Plessis 4.33, Rayudu 5.50 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Jadhav 7.50, Dhoni 9.00.

What are the most sixes IPL tips for Royal Challengers v Super Kings?

Betting on IPL matches has us looking for some value in outside teams. Moreover, we think we’ve found it in Sunday’s most sixes market. With Virat Kohli returning to form, Royal Challengers Bangalore are the obvious favourites to record more maximums and they can be picked up at 1.90.

However, we’re backing CSK to edge what could be a low scoring contest. Therefore, we’ll get behind the away side here at generous odds of 2.25.

Most Sixes Odds Summary: Royal Challengers Bangalore 1.90, Chennai Super Kings 2.25 (Betway – Editor’s Pick). The Tie 8.50.
